Help with flood fill please

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I’m a complete newbie, only got AD for iPad 2 days ago so I’m still finding my way around! One question though ... I’ve got a black ink hand drawn image, I have removed the background with another app, so the background is now transparent. I’m trying to fill in areas with colour, so for example flood fill each petal on a flower. I have selected the right layer and changed to pixels rather than vector. When I try the flood fill icon, all that happens is it changes the colour of the black ink outline rather than filling an area. Does anyone know how to do it please? Or does AD not recognise the black outlines as the ‘edge’ of an image? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

It takes a little getting used to. Sounds like you have background /outline selected in colour studio (little circle thin outline). It controls outline colour. Tap the other (full) circle, to fill inside colour. You can also do it in vector mode with the fill/gradient tool for more effects. See video below.

There is a useful Help file in PDF to browse through. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/64366-affinity-designer-16-on-ipad-pdf-help-file/

Thank you for your reply. I’ve tried with the full circle, but as soon as I choose a colour it automatically changes the lines to that colour. I’ll have a good read of that document though, thanks.

Any other ideas anyone?

Try this.. Draw a rectangle larger than the hand and fill it with a colour. Select the layer in layer studio and drag it over the hand layer. When you see a blue line let the layer go. If that does not work it may be the way your image has been modified to make it transparent. If you are able to attach tthe .afdesign file, someone here can take a look and give further advice.
